Philipstown high school seniors are invited to apply for the Philip Baumgarten Memorial Scholarship, awarded by the Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the scholarship is to promote high school student interest and involvement in the community as volunteers and as valued workers for local business. Applications are due by Wednesday, March 13, and the scholarship will be awarded on March 21 at the Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner.
The scholarship will be awarded to a student who has shown community spirit and commitment by volunteering for a Philipstown nonprofit or charitable organization and/or by working for or with a local business, if possible a Chamber of Commerce member. Seniors are asked to submit two letters of recommendation along with the completed application.
Copies of the application are available from: Carol Hopper at Haldane High School; Suzanne Schmidt at O’Neill High School; and Stephanie Impellittiere at Garrison School.
